Pure Glee!

It's color challenge week at Frosted Designs!

This week, we were challenged to create a project featuring orange, green, teal and yellow as the primary colors. Digging through my stash, I found these little wallet pics of my beautiful niece that I thought would be perfect for the challenge. The only thing was, I couldn't think of a title for the page. I went through my countless alpha stickers and came across these Lime Rickey alphabet stickers from Basic Grey, which are similar to the font for the television show Glee - of which I am unabashedly a huge fan of. It was destined for my layout!

On a totally off-topic side note - I completely urge you to watch Glee. It's seriously the best hour of TV - hands down. Sure, it's kind of campy and cheesy. Yes, it makes me very glad that I'm not in high school any more. But the characters are so real, the story line - over all - is well thought out and portrayed, and the music is friggin' IN*CRED*IBLE! Everything from Journey, Madonna, Rick Springfield, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, KISS, Frank Sinatra, and a handful of show tunes, featuring several Broadway-trained actors. Hello. Call it awesome - because that's what it is! There has not been a single episode that we haven't immediately purchased all the songs on iTunes and immediately fell in love. Even my kiddos know all the Glee songs.

My hubby and I started watching it through on-demand TV during the winter hiatus about a week before the show started back up in February. We ended up watching those episodes twice. We bought the Season 1 Part 1 DVDs as soon as they were released and have watched them several times. We recorded the spring episodes (part 2 of Season 1) and have not deleted them, because there are just days when we need our Glee fix. I've now lent my Season 1 Part 1 DVDs out to 5 of my friends from many different backgrounds - with requests from 3 more - and everybody has loved it.

Go - watch it - and share some Glee love!

Thanks for stopping by!
